Vacheron Constantin 56 Seconds to Fiftysix (3)

In the third episode of the series, Christian Selmoni, Vacheron Constantin Style & Heritage Director, talks about the mastery of know-how.

Fiftysix, a name and a date evoking an iconic model presented in 1956. The golden age of round timepieces, the 1950s represented the pinnacle of aesthetic refinement.

This timepiece is distinguished by its shape – and notably its lugs, each representing a branch of the Maltese cross which has become an emblem of the Manufacture. For the first time in its history, the Maison has decided to offer a classic collection both in gold and in steel.

It is by reinterpreting its own roots that the Fiftysix collection achieves a distinctive style by adopting a crown recessed into the case, thereby setting it apart from its 1956 predecessor, which took a more classic approach.
